Ramblin’ Man

Robert Earl Keen: One of the last true highwaymen.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Some guys are just meant to have grit in their teeth. They dream about white lines flashing by at a steady hum. They hear the call of the road like a phone ringing. Eventually they have to answer, something deep in their bones forcing them to move forward. Robert...

Raw Power

The North Mississippi Allstars prove the blues can rock and still have some soul.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Luther Dickinson can rattle off the names of long-forgotten bluesmen with the ease of a nun naming the 12 apostles. There’re the easy ones like R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, current alterna-hipster essentials to show you’ve got roots....

Back in the Saddle

After two years off, Unwritten Law is ready to pass judgement again.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Odds are that, when Rob Brewer was a kid, his mom told him that patience is a virtue. That eternally maternal sentence “The world doesn’t revolve around what you want this instant,” probably came out at least once, maybe even followed...

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - We’ve all hit that moment. Last call is creeping through the door. Common sense left hours ago. Your veins are hopped-up on enough alcohol to start a dragster. You’re saying things that probably shouldn’t be said to people you should...

Train Keeps a Rollin’

Wayne The Train Hancock is raging against the Nashville machine.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Wayne “The Train” Hancock loves country. Not the country those Stetson-wearing stockbrokers and soccer moms listen to. They think Faith Hill wears chaps on a regular basis and has some serious issues with twang. What the hell do they know...

Astronomical!

Man or Astro-Man? has been confounding fans and scientists alike for years.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Human cloning just gets some people pissed. They don’t like the moral implications, the idea of mere mortals playing God. Who cares about the medical benefits that could potentially come out of cloning experiments—”I’d like a liver,...

Girl Power

Tori Amos takes on the most masculine thing of all: rock.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Guys own rock. They throw up their fists at Black Sabbath shows. They mosh 10 years after it was cool. They bang their heads. They crank their stereos. They treat lyrics like a call to arms. They resort to large stacks of amps when they can’t figure...

A Farewell to Amps

The Murder City Devils are saying goodbye the only way they know how.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Sometimes the clichés make sense—at least for the Murder City Devils. For the last four years, the Seattle-based seven-piece has been hyping the healing powers of rock & roll with all the fervor of a backwoods preacher, bashing out dirty,...

The Money Shot

Money Mark Nishita wants to put some bump in your rump.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It might be an exaggeration to say Mark Nishita saved the Beastie Boys, but what the hell, let’s do it anyway. See, by the early ’90s those three Brooklyn buds were headed right for the pop-culture crapper. Just look at the facts: License...
